On Thursday's episode of "The Steve Deace Show," Steve discussed Brandt Jean's extraordinary act of forgiveness that followed the sentencing of Amber Guyger, the former Dallas police officer who murdered an unarmed black man (Brandt's brother) in his apartment in 2018.
Wednesday, Jean issued the following statement of grievance at the sentencing of the woman who killed his brother:
"I love you just like anyone else, and I'm not going to hope you rot and die," Brandt Jean told Guyger. "I personally want the best for you. I wasn't going to say this in front of my family; I don't even want you to go to jail. I want the best for you because I know that's exactly what Botham would want for you. Give your life to Christ. I think giving your life to Christ is the best thing Botham would want for you."
Brandt asked the presiding judge for permission to hug Guyger. The judge allowed it; Brandt and Guyger embraced in a hug that lasted more than 30 seconds.
According to Steve, the scene that unfolded in the courtroom on Wednesday did not make any sense if the Gospel of Jesus Christ is not real.
"This is why the Gospel always makes people uncomfortable," Steve said. " There is not a place for you to middle it...because it is counter to our nature."
